Famed all around Italy for the remarkable food that is produced on the island (it is where British chef Jamie Oliver spent one week whilst filming a programme), this quality can be sampled in any of the local eateries that dot the harbour road and the tiny streets behind. There is one hotel on the island, the Marettimo Residence, so it may be best to book in advance to ensure a stay and getting the ferry from Sicily may be a little difficult depending on the weather but it is worth the wait. It is also possible to get accommodation in some of the small pensions located around Scala Nuovo by asking around. La Scaletti is a restaurant famed throughout Italy for its remarkable food and is well worth a visit.
The island itself is a hidden gem in the Mediterranean and as very few tourists make it here due to its rugged mountainous nature, this is an island of adventure and there are plenty of adventures to be had. There is a remarkable natural wonder on the east coast of the island called the Grotta del Cammello; it may be difficult to reach but it is astoundingly beautiful and the best thing is, there probably won’t be anyone else there. There are also a number of Roman and Spanish ruins that dot the islands and are a testament to the importance of the island’s place in Italian history as an observation point due to being one of the most westerly points in the country.
